That's cool and all but at what point is the player considered a noble by the system? I'd assume its upon reaching a certain renown/party tier level? (Similarly to how you don't have to pay to enter a keep after a certain threshold?)
I'm unclear on this seeing as you can choose your nobleman's banner and such right at the start of the game

Code wise speaking, all clan members (except companions and mercenaries clan) are tagged as nobles.

Good patch! Though the game won't launch now, after pressing "Play" on Steam. The launcher will open for 1 second and immediately shut down again on my end... Anyone got the same issue?

Caravans are now transferred to the heir when the player character dies.
That's awesome! The workshops works this way too?

Also, this could be great addition too when the main Hero Player died and his stash (inventory) goes to the heir or his Home (where his wife is base as governor, supposing wife is governor or the settlement the Hero was living)

What you think?

"small" improvements mean a lot of work...
QoL changes are welcomed but calling any of these "a lot of work" seems like an exaggeration. Which particular "small" improvement do you think would take a lot of work?

That's cool and all but at what point is the player considered a noble by the system? I'd assume its upon reaching a certain renown/part tier level?
I'm 95% sure that it's not based on renown. It's probably either checking if character is Hero or not ( any non-soldier character considered as hero ) or it's checking first if it's Hero and then checking if it's in any clan/kingdom ( which makes wanderer companions that are not hired considered to be non-noble )

There is a german localisation?
As far as I know, no. Perhaps they added with this patch

Nice patch! Thanks, TW team!

Could you please tell us how can we know if Multiplayer servers are up for each beta build?

Also, how’s your progress with the new battle terrain system?

I am geniunely curious, why do you keep adding Battanian equipment as other cultures such as Vlandia, Aserai and Khuzait lack those even more? Especially shoulder armor pieces are very few, why dont you focus on making some of those instead of adding brand new Battanian set with every update?
